I am an engineer by profession who worked in private sector for many years. My bachelor’s degree is in Civil Engineering, master’s in Assistive Technology with focus on Accessibility, and I am currently working on my PHD in Engineering and Applied Mathematics with focus on Finite Element Analysis and Structural Topology Optimization.
I am a National Science Foundation Alumnus and ANSI standard committee member with experience in transportation of people with mobility impairment through public transportation. Among projects I have been working are:
- Boeing Simulation lab (Cal state Long Beach)
- Intelligent Stage, a smart environment helping the study of automation and its effect on aging (Cal state Long Beach)
- Hybrid aircraft seat and the process of crashworthiness certification through simulation (Cal state Long Beach-Claremont Graduate University)
I have been teaching in Cypress College, Moorpark College and California State University Long Beach. My Goal is to help you finding your passion in engineering and prepare you for a smooth transition to the engineering discipline of your choice.
ENGR 220 – Programming and Problem Solving in MATLAB
MATLAB is a mathematical and graphical software package with numerical, graphical, and programming capabilities. MATLAB has become the standard software tool for solving scientific and engineering problems due to its powerful built-in functions and its ability to program. Coding in MATLAB is relatively easy and participating in this class requires no prior knowledge of programming.
This class is transferable to UC and CSU.
ENGR 205 – Advanced 3D Solid Modeling & Simulation with Solidworks
This is an advanced course in CAD using Solidworks which is the most recognizable engineering software within the industry and the software of choice in academia. Solidworks is required for most of engineering disciplines such as Mechanical, Aerospace, Biomedical etc. Upon successful completion of this class, and passing of a proctored exam on behalf of Dassault Systemes, the students receive CSWA certificate or “Mechanical Design at the level of Associate” issued by Dassault Systemes joining over 321,000 certified CAD professionals. This class is transferable to UC and CSU.
ENGR 201 – Statics
Statics is the study of methods for quantifying the forces that act on bodies at rest under equilibrium. Statics is an essential prerequisite for many branches of engineering, such as mechanical, civil, aeronautical, and bioengineering. This class is transferable to UC and CSU.
